Effect of early weight bearing on outcomes after open reduction and internal fixation of trimalleolar ankle fractures
from Orthopedics Today
Current practice allows early weight bearing of unstable ankle fractures after fixation. This study offers a unique comparison of early weight bearing versus late weight bearing in operatively stabilized trimalleolar ankle fractures. The goal of this study was to evaluate union rates, clinical outcomes, and complications for patients who were managed with EWB versus LWB.
